The team was alerted by Cumbria Police to a walking couple who had become disoriented in the mist whilst descending Scafell Pike and required assistance. As there were no injuries, a small team was despatched to intercept the couple, alongside some guidance from the Team Leader to walk off the fell towards Brotherilkeld. This proved successful, reducing the significant walk in to Green Hole, and the team met up with the walkers near to Lingcove Bridge, before escorting them the rest of the way.

Incident started at 19:28 and ended at 23:11 making 3.7 hrs in total. There were 6 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 240 054. Total rescuer hours: 22
